Senator CANT (Western Australia) . - First, I congratulate Senator Webster and Senator Sim on the speeches that, they have made tonight. I am sure that all of those who heard them will go away with the feeling that in future we shall hear more of them. As they progress and gain more confidence in themselves and this place, we shall be very pleased to hear them again. I was particularly interested to hear Senator Webster's reference to television. I assure him that he expressed the views of members of the Senate select committee on television when he said that he hoped the Government would take action on at least some of the matters that were brought to the notice of the Senate. Senator Sim made some rather enlightened comments about Papua and New Guinea and presented in a very concise manner some of the problems hat confront the Territory. The fact that a man who has been through the Territory before is able to renew acquaintance with it and to come back and inform the Senate in the manner in which the honorable senator has done shows that trips which members of the Parliament have the advantage of making at times do pay off in the long run. Mr. President, I ask for leave to continue my remarks at a later stage.

Leave granted; debate adjourned.
